Sunday Riley Makes It Easy to Prep Your Skin For Your Big Day

by Katherine Callaghan

Even though my wedding is less than a year away, in the back of my mind I always think about (dare I say it!) a breakout before my big day. My skin is extremely sensitive and tends to breakout around my period and when I’m extremely stressed. As much as I tell myself that I won’t stress days before the wedding, let’s be real, that’s probably not going to happen.

A few weeks ago, I was really stressed with work, wedding planning, and house hunting and, like clockwork, a breakout emerged. I’m not talking a few blemishes here and there. I’m talking about the nasty under the skin pimples that are everyone’s worst nightmare.

I decided to take action and try Sunday Riley‘s Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask. I’ve tried my fair share of face masks, but I’ve read a lot of great reviews and decided to give it a whirl. I left the mask on overnight, an option you can try or if you’re prone to dryness you can simply leave it on for 20-30 minutes, and in the morning I couldn’t believe the results. The swelling of my blemishes went down tremendously and I showed little signs of redness.  Thanks to the levels of sulfur, which is used to dry and clear up existing acne, and niacinamide, which reduces the appearance acne,  this acne mask really targets your troubled areas and begins working immediately. I’ve been doing this mask twice a week for a few weeks now and  I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin.  In fact, I’ve hadn’t had a breakout since! Of course, I’m not saying I’m never going to breakout again (because sadly I will), but with how fast this treatment  targeted my (major!) blemishes, I  highly recommend this product to brides-to-be who notice a blemish starting to emerge days before their wedding (we don’t need any extra stress leading up to the big day!)

However, it’s not enough to just clear your skin. As a bride-to-be, it’s important to start prepping your skin months in advance to achieve a desired healthy glow. Once my skin clears from a breakout, I notice my skin looks dull in appearance and is in need of a desperate pick-me-up. If you feel the same, then Sunday Riley‘s C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum is a must-have. This serum is formulated with Vitamin C, to help brighten skin, and Phytosterols Complex, which helps with the appearance of redness to help give you brightness and radiance. The best part, this serum can be easily incorporated into your daily makeup routine! I apply this serum every morning before I apply my makeup, and I’ve already noticed a difference in my skin! So, brides-to-be, it’s time to start prepping your skin and Sunday Riley just made our lives a whole lot easier!
